Searching for Orders in Acquisitions

Simple searching

Quick Search: The quick search allows you to search by one term only ; for example, invoice number, vendor, PO number, etc.

1. Click on the Orders tab in the List Bar and then click on the Search Orders icon.

2.  In the Search By box, click on the down arrow and highlight the index you wish to use. You may also type in the first letter of the index name (for example, V for vendor name,  another V for vendor code).

3. The condition Equal will prompt; change if necessary. Possible conditions are dependent on the index you chose in Search By. For dates, “greater” means later and “less” means earlier; for alphabetical searches “greater” follows alphabetically and “less” precedes alphabetically.

4. Click on the Search for box.  If a down arrow appears to the right of the box, the index you have chosen is a controlled search. Highlight one of the choices in the drop down and the search will automatically be done.  If an arrow does not appear, it is a free text search. Type the text in the Search For box and click on the Search button.

The following indexes are valid for PO searches (* indicates a free-text search)

PO Number * Status Status Date
Invoice Number * Create Date Approve Date
Vendor Name * Ship To Location PO Note *
Vendor Code *  Bill To Location                     PO Instructions *
